This two amazing tutorials on creating the imitation of precious stones on any hard surfaces are created by Irina Kulik, for company Domino.

Imitation of malachite

First we will  imitate  malachite. I will use the following in this tutorial:

1. The first step is the preparation of the surface for decoration. Prime the surface with Daily ART Primer White for Velvet Effect Paste to adhere better to the surface. vlevet paste daily art 1

2. Use color malachite of Velvet Effect Paste to cover all the surface. Do it with a palette knife. Do uneven layer. Do short strokes in different directions. Let the strokes overlap. My box has relief edges  that I will not decorate in this step.vlevet paste daily art 2

3. While malachite color is still wet add few strokes of other colors of Velvet Effect Paste. Blend colors to get the gradient effect. Let the paste dry.

4. Use small size, for example, size 0, round brush to paint few lines, spots and dots on the surface. I use Daily ART Matt Paint for this step colors dark brown, dark green. In few places blend lines and spots with your finger. Let the colors dry.vlevet paste daily art 6vlevet paste daily art 7

In this tutorial I use:

1. Prime the surface with Primer White. Let it dry naturally, or use a hair dryer.

2. My box has nice relief edges that look fantastic but are hard to decorate with paste. In this step I will not decorate them. I will decorate the edges later with Matt Paint. Apply jasper color Velvet Effect paste to all the surface. Change the angle at which you hold palette knife and make few strokes on paste Velvet Effect to form the stone-like pattern. While the layer of Paste Velvet Effect is still wet add few spots of other colors of Velvet Paste.  Do different size spots, in this way the imitation of jasper will be realistic. Let the paste dry.

3. Now I will decorate the inside part of the box and the edges. Paint it with Daily ART Matt Paint, mix saddle brown and chocolate colors for this step. While the paint is wet with round brush add few spots with colors  saffron, saddle brown and chocolate.  Let the paint dry.

5. To add more depth to the top of the jewelry box, cover the top part with a thick layer of Daily ART Epoxy Resin.  Here you can find information on how to use Daily ART Epoxy resin. It is very important to follow all the instructions when you mix Epoxy Resin, and read precaution information. Leave the box for 24-48 hours for Epoxy Resin to harden.
